A few months ago I wrote about my newfound appreciation for the city of Plymouth and its lovely downtown. I still stand by that assessment thanks to my first visit to Six Burner Bistro, and after another day trip north, the appreciation has grown.
Those VIEWS from 93!
Now, back to the blog at hand. I don’t mean to brag, but my friends have pretty good taste, especially when it comes to food.
I often pick their brains when I’m looking for a new place to visit, for leaf-peeping, beaches, or just a food-centric road trip, which in my opinion are the best kind. My friend Doug gets credit for knowing about today’s hidden location, and it was totally worth sneaking down an alley to find a late lunch, “sandwiched under Chase Street Market in downtown Plymouth.”
We had been up in the White Mountains all day leaf peeping and hiking to find waterfalls, with weather toeing the lines between rain, snow, and sunshine. We were a combination of chilled to the bone (AKA not used to the colder edge of fall yet!) and sleepy from driving around for many hours. Food was a must on our drive home. While hot comfort food was needed, we wanted something that wouldn’t completely make us fall asleep but still replenish our failing energy levels.
My afore mentioned friend had heard of Biedermans Deli as the location of the best sandwiches in New Hampshire, so that naturally piqued our interest. After trudging down the alley and into a dark hall, we were greeted with friendly staff and a fun, unassuming atmosphere, somewhere between a family restaurant and a college-esque sports bar. I imagine this place is really fun and busy at night, but at 4 PM on a Saturday afternoon, the mood was relaxed and most people were gathered with friends and family, half watching college football and enjoying a local pint or two.
It may be my inner history nerd and my professional background, but I really appreciated the interiors. The gorgeous brickwork and wood beams? Gorgeous. If anyone has any insight on the origins of the building, please share! (A brief google search didn’t yield any answers, but I’ll keep working on it.)
As for the sandwiches? They were pretty good. We had the alley wrap (bottom left), the Reuben, and I think the Cellar Dweller. The alley wrap was packed full of vegetables and cheese, and I was a big fan of their homemade honey mustard and also that you could order anything hot, a must for our cold day in the woods! The sandwiches really fit the bill and I would certainly recommend them pre or post adventure, or on a day of exploring pretty Plymouth. You can see the rest of their menu here including their famous Balboa.
Find your next favorite sandwich at 83 Main St. in Plymouth seven days a week from 11 AM to 9 PM.
